  3. Accompanied Kopprasch by Jeffrey Agrell
    $9.99

    The famous Kopprasch etudes for horn (ca. 1830) are, like almost all etude collections, for horn alone. As useful as they are in developing technique, Kopprasch etudes in themselves are rather dry and mechanical as far as considering them as music is concerned. To add some life and depth to them, we have composed piano accompaniments to the first 34 etudes. These accompaniments provide some background in harmony and rhythm for the horn player, and should make the process of working on the originals much more musical and interesting; some may even be suitable for performance. The level of the accompaniments is intermediate - not for a beginner, but by no means virtuoso, so horn teachers with some level of piano skill will be able to play many of them. Learn More

  9. Dreams of Casbah for Solo Natural Horn
    $8.00

    Fleeting images of a Middle Eastern bazaar appear in muted colors that fade in and out. The morning begins slowly, as merchants get ready for the day ahead. Somewhere in the distance the bazaar begins and the marketplace builds in activity and excitement. The market activity peaks and gradually subsides, and the aftermath gives way to the evening. The dreamer is finally transported away from the Casbah with memories of the day's excitement trailing behind.  -Jeffrey Snedeker, November 2016

  18. Prelude for Solo Horn

    Starting at: $4.00

    Solo work that explores the technique of stopping the horn. Composed for Marvin Howe.

    In 1972 THE HORN CALL published part of a short treatise by Marvin Howe on Stopped Horn (1968).  In this short treatise, Marvin Howe discussed an effective method for improving stopped horn technique. The essential statement was that closing the hand in the bell of the horn, lowers the pitch to a half-step above the next lowest partial in the harmonic series.”  The subsequent letters to the editor of THE HORN CALL became what was known as “The Great Stopped Horn Debate.”  Rather than write a letter to the editor, I chose to compose this Prelude—to illustrate the techniques discussed by Marvin Howe.  (REF)

    Interestingly enough, the review of this composition also became an ongoing discussion between the reviewer-Dr. Gayle Chesebro, the Editor of the Horn Call-Paul Mansur, and Dr. Howe.   So, this composition, itself, also became part of “The Great Stopped Horn Debate”!

    In many ways the composition is a dialog between the outdoor horn-with little fanfares on open notes of the harmonic series-and the indoor horn-with open-stopped glissandi-created by closing the right hand inside the horn.  In the end, regardless of whether one is projecting open notes or stopped notes, the harmonic series always wins the debate! Grade: 5 University Division Solo Horn Selection--American Horn Competition, 1991, 1994, 1997, & 2001.

  19. Preparatory Kopprasch by Jeffrey Agrell
    $9.99

    This new volume takes the spirit and general approach of the original and provides “stepping stone” etudes for young players by reducing the range and length of the originals, and occasionally making other adjustments to enable novice players to experience the material similar to the original Kopprasch etudes. Players who use this preparatory material will very likely be ready and able to tackle the original Kopprasch etudes much earlier and more easily than before. Learn More

    Based on the most popular all-time etude collection for horn, 60 Etudes by Georg Kopprasch, Rhythm Kopprasch uses the original Kopprasch etude’s pitches, but applies them to a vastly more challenging array of rhythms, meters, accents, and styles.
